Setting Up a SCSI Hard Drive
Posted on 2004-03-28
I inherited an old Adaptec AVA-1502 SCSI adapter and Micropolis Stinger 4743NS SCSI drive from a friend. That was the easy part. Now I'd like to see if I can get it to work in an older computer of mine running 98se.
I inserted the card into the mobo and booted to Windows. I had no problem installing the card.
Both the hdd and card are listed in device manager. But the drive doesn't show up in My Computer, probably because it hasn't been formated yet and assigned a drive letter.
First off, how do I access the drive to run fdisk and format? I read online about the scsi bios performing a bus scan, but I don't see any scsi info during booting.
The Stinger is the only drive attached to the card. The only jumpers I have on the drive are W1, W3, W4.
Thank you for your help.
